I have been working at AGLA full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

When you are doing the job well, you are left alone to get it done. When you have struggles, there is a team to help you learn what you need to be successful. Great training, products, and compensation.

Cons

Its a hard job if you work it easy and an easy job when you work it hard.

Advice to Management

National Advertising Campaigns.

    Pros

    They have actual benefits; like pension, health insurance, dental etc!
    They have an excellent cutting edge product- Critical and Chronic health accelerated benefit riders at no charge. You are a W-2 employee; they part of your SS tax and withhold Fed and State.

    Cons

    Front office is the focus of the company's energy, NOT the agents. They do every stupid thing they can to slow you down. They make you get signatures for and and every little thing. The underwriting is sometimes loose and sometimes so stupidly uptight as to make you insane.
    The pay per issued app is very low.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the 1950's way of looking at business. Get rid of the stupid Pad. Facilitate your agents efforts DON'T hinder them at every opportunity! Too many stupid and time consuming meetings (and reports).

    I worked at AGLA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ability for endless earnings. If you are fortunate enough to become an associate manager or general manager you will have it made (these people do absolutely nothing and make big bucks).

    Cons

    As in most insurance sales, strictly commission based. If a client cancels a policy within a year you lose all commission that you made on the sale. Getting help from a manager when needed is like pulling teeth. A big "what have you done for me lately" type office. Lacking professionalism big time as well, they are concerned with themselves and not whats best for a client.

    Advice to Management

    Filter your candidates for local management better. Big sales figures don't make someone a good manager.
